Re: Ryusoulger 05 released

Oddly enough, this was my favorite episode of the series so far; this addressed a bunch of my concerns on previous episodes, from the masters' deaths not having any impact to worldbuilding that felt way too forced to the lack of chemistry between the characters (it's hard to pinpoint how, but just a...

Re: Ryusoulger 04 released

I kinda liked the episode from an episodic viewpoint, though I felt the story arc aspects ended up suffering. First off, perhaps my favorite part of the episode was how Koh was totally unfazed by Towa's acting like a jerk at the beginning; we rarely get characters who react to essentially bullies wi...

Re: Ryusoulger 03 released

Well, to start off, the episode didn't have any forced exposition, and the first few minutes of this one were far more enjoyable than the first bit of the last one. RyuusoulBlue having his own mini-arc was also a welcome shift of focus after a mostly Red-focused last two. With that said, the monster...

Re: Ryusoulger 02v4.1 Released!

Wow, this show is having some really bad pacing issues. Offing the masters in the first episode was one thing but killing the main cast by episode 2 was seriously really rushing things.

Re: Ryusoulger 02 released

I'm hoping future episodes will keep the shadow of the masters' deaths around. wELP that didn't happen Unironically, though, it feels a little concerning that they've shifted gears to a more episodic, comedic setting after a story-crowded and catastrophic first episode. There's still worldbuilding ...

Re: Ryusoulger 01 released

Well, this certainly felt like a mixed bag. First of all, I felt the concept was really on point. The swords-and-sworcery approach felt fresh, having a mentor team and a rookie team worked really well (though it looks like we aren't going to get more of that :|), the world has its own lore that it i...

Re: Should Sentai or Rider go on a break?

I'm not sure if they need to take a break, but in my opinion they need to change the tone... [Kamen Rider needs] to make the themes a little more mature. Instead of having a show themed on fruit, ghosts or animals have the rider system be a government project with a driver that looks like it could ...

Re: Power Rangers/Kamen Rider vs. Iron Man

I think the Power Rangers concept was more or less old news by the time of Iron Man, and was essentially renowned as a kids series on a TV budget; additionally, I feel it helped Iron Man that the latter started out with more complex, realistic suitups in the first movie before springboarding into th...

Wow, it's been a while since I posted here. Not going to post an in-depth catchup when it'd be best saved for a series review, but here are some random notes from after I'd left off: Sento's got to be one of the worst pacifists ever Not sure comedifying Gentoku works as we've never seen that comedic...

Saban to Adapt Garo into New American Series

Well, this is interesting. "Earlier today, Haim Saban, the man behind Power Rangers and a few other one-time things that didn't work out, has officially announced that he will be taking footage from the Hyper Action Midnight Drama series, Garo , for an entirely new American production.

Can I just point out how extremely similar some of the aspects of this series is compared something I posted here? http://forums.tvnihon.com/viewtopic.php?f=148&t=21799 I've also noticed the similarity; the concept of the three police/vigilantes/villains forces seem all but impossible to mark off a...

Re: Japanese broadcaster apologizes after false North Korea missile alert

The fact that this comes mere days after Hawaii's similar warning has me raising an eyebrow. For all I know Hawaii and Japan both started working on such an alert after a certain authority figure started threatening NK and they both gave a false alarm upon completion (although it seems Japan's alert...

Re: Finding/buying Toku music

In America, iTunes has Gaim's opening, a few incidental songs (mostly from Kamen Rider Girls), and the Kamen Rider Generations Final soundtrack (including at least the ending song).
